ASHBURN, Va. - As expected, the rift between linebacker LaVar Arrington and the Washington Redskins will have to be settled by an arbitrator.
Arrington, who signed a nine-year, $68 million contract in December, contends the deal with the Redskins, which was put together quickly because of a
salary-cap related deadline is missing a $6.5 million signing bonus for the year 2006.
The Washington Post, which reported the two sides were headed to arbitration in Friday's editions, said the original hearing was set for Sept. 21 -
nine days after Washington's regular-season opener against Tampa Bay. However, it will now be moved up to early next month.
